In addition to this, he also is producing a film on a very interesting concept for Netflix.
According to reports, SRK’s new project will be set in the year 1983 and will be about the Mumbai Police’s initiative to train a special team of encounter specialists and shooters at the time when the underworld was at its peak in the city. The film produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, will have all elements of a well mounted period drama and will also have the World Cup win in the backdrop of the plot.
